Scholarships

ScholarshipsEvery year the department gives away more than $60,000 in scholarships and fellowships to undergraduate and graduate students associated with our department.

Undergraduate students in food systems and plant science are automatically entered for all departmental scholarships when they apply for college-level scholarships through the CFANS scholarship page. If you are not eligible for college scholarships, contact the scholarship coordinator at kling175@umn.edu to gain access to the application. Apply and write "Department Scholarship Application Only" in the first line of your response to question #1 on the application.

Graduate students are nominated for scholarships and fellowships by their faculty advisers.
